SPECIAL WEDNESDAY POST! I posting early again, because I have some news that I am SOOOO excited to share with you all! I'll get back on my regular Tuesday/Thursday posting schedule next week. :)
So, waaaaayyy back in February, I posted a blog about the ArtServe Creative Many Census, a survey about the creative economy in Michigan.
I encouraged all of the artists and crafters I know to complete the survey and, of course, I completed it myself. Everyone who completed the survey was entered into a random drawing to win a mini-grant of $500, $1000 or $1500 to support their creative endeavors.
Well, guess what, dear blog readers???
I RECEIVED THE $1500 MINI-GRANT!!!
OMG! OMG! OMG!
When I completed the survey, I pledged to the other Directors of Flint Handmade to donate 10% of the mini-grant to Flint Handmade should I be selected to receive one. I am so excited to be able to give Flint Handmade $150!
In honor of the ArtServe Creative Many Census, Flint Handmade is going to sponsor our own version of a creative survey: We want to know how YOU think Flint Handmade should spend the $150!
Should we buy new weatherproof FH Knuckles logo banners? Should we host a pizza party for all of the friends of Flint Handmade? Should we award mini-grants to some of our vendors? Or should we do something else entirely???
Post a comment with YOUR idea for the $150 by 5pm on Tuesday, October 12th. Flint Handmade will select our favorite idea and post it on the blog on Thursday, October 14th. If your idea is selected, YOU will receive 10% of the $150, because we want to encourage continued creative philanthropy in Flint!
We can't wait to start receiving your ideas!
